Comprehensive treatment planning of multiple teeth involvement is challenging, especially in cases of decreased vertical dimension (VD) of occlusion. This case report describes the sequential methodical interdisciplinary approach employed to treat severely mutilated dentition with a loss of VD. After performing endodontic treatment for required teeth, a bite raising transitional prosthesis was given for increasing the VD to acquire essential interocclusal space for post and core buildups and full coverage restorations. After the validation of new VD, reconstruction was performed with the permanent prosthesis. Thus, a satisfactory clinical result was achieved by restoring the VD with the reestablishment of function and esthetics.
